bacteria. that's what i'm afraid of. >> reporter: disabled tenants living in this 212-unit apartment building in san jose have had problems getting hot water since december 3rd. >> we're told, catch it when you can. >> reporter: tenants say they've tried to do that. but the water doesn't stay hot long enough even for a quick shower. >> by the time i put on my soap and everything, ice cold. this morning i -- it's easy for me to catch cold that way. >> luke warm. >> yeah, this is not hot at all. when you get in there when the water is hot and then it turns cold, that can be rather shocking for somebody who is 70 to 80 to 90 years old. >> reporter: we asked to speak for management but instead issued a statement from a firm which represents the town park towers. the statement says, the problem with the solar heating system was immediately addressed and repaired on december 3rd. but then another problem was discovered. it goes on to say, as of noon today, quote, the replacement boiler system is providing

if you click on the weather tab you will find the latest on any severe weather at "american idol" lerts, as well. fire damaged the home this afternoon in east san jose and the cause may be weather related. firefighters responded to the two-story home in the eastern foothills around 3:30. officials say the entire roof was on fire when they arrived. they say it quickly spread because it was an older wood shake roof. other factors made putting out the fire even more difficult. >> a lot of problems with collapse hazards due to the roof burning and collapsing into the structure. also significant water supply problems up here in the foothilling. real tight roads, poor access. it's been a stubborn, difficult fire for the people tonight. >> all people were able to evacuate and no one was hurt. the cause of the fire is still under investigation but residents said they had a fire going in the fireplace when the fire broke out. 25-year-old man is behind bars tonight after police say he broke into a woman's apartment
in san francisco and raped her. investigators say 25-year-old jones of marin city forced his way into a 26-year-old woman's home just as she was coming in the door last night. she told police he forced her to the floor, threatened to kill her, demanded money and raped her. neighbor called 911 kurg the attack and officers say jones tried to flee but they tracked him down and arrested him. more than a dozen people at the hilton hotel in downtown san jose ended up sick this afternoon. hazmat crews responded to the scene just before 11:00. paramedics treated 13 people at the scene which complained of irritation to the throat and eyes. they believe they were exposed to some type of chemical but sill investigating that. there was laughter, surprise, screams of excitement and tears at tonight's golden globes. one of the most emotional moments came by a speech by actress jodie foster when she reached out toer 84-year-old mother who suffers from dementia. >> i love you. i love you. i love you.
i hope that if i say this three times it will magically and perfectly enter into your soul, fill you with grace and the joy of know that you did good in this life, you're a great mom. please take that with you when you're finally okay to go. >> foster was honored tonight with the cecil b. award for lifetime achievement. the biggest surprise guest, there he is. president bill clinton who introduced the movie "lincoln." daniel day-lewis who played the role of lincoln won best actor in a drama tonight. the host of tonight's award show poked harmless fun at themselves and the nominees giving the show a much lighter atmosphere than the last few years when ricky gervais hosted. after the awards are the parties, right? nbc universal after party is drawing the crowd, partly because of the weather. what's going on? >> reporter: diane, i would show you my dress if it was even ten degrees warmer, but me wearing
this is really a last resort. it is cold. everybody is calling this the frozen globes. it's just so cold this year. and everybody knew it, so people brought jackets. unfortunately these parties are not tented. these after parties. nbc's, which is right here, is tented. and so it's become quite popular. it's hopping in there. fox, nobody's there. it's not tented. and there's another one, i think, by hbo, not tented. nobody's there. inside is the cast of "mash" which is nominated for best tv comedy or musical tonight. amy poler, tina fey, your hosts, who got accolades for being just so hilarious on the heels of ricky gervais last year. they did not win in their category of best actress for "30 rock" but they're in there having a great time. also, big, big nbc universal winners tonight anne hathaway,
hugh jackman, the whole cast of "le zrk "lesmes" is in there. they're partying it up, lag loose. now that the awards have ended and the fun has begun. >> that looks like a pretty good party. any talk of whether anybody got snubbed this year at the awards? >> reporter: you know, a lot of people got snubbed. that was definitely a topic this year. first of all, "sky fall" which was most box office -- or asorr. my ear just popped out. anyway, really wonderful in "sky fall," he got -- he wasn't nominated for any of the acting categories. also, "the dark knight rises, batman," christian bale, none of those people were nominated. and some other people, "the beasts of the southern wild" which was a huge nominee for the
academy awards which is next month, didn't hardly get anything. so, yeah, it was a lot about what was left out as much as what was included this year. >> all right. gina kim reporting for us live in beverly hills. keep that coat in and get inside as soon as you can. thank you. >> thank you. san francisco ecurrent tv is on the air tonight but it won't be for long. "the plug" will soon be pulled. controversial and big money deal, they sold their network to al jazeera. many people turn to al jazeera for quality journalism but others belief it's antiamerican. whatever your belief, al jazeera is now coming to u.s. airwaves thanks to former vice president al gore and his business partner joe hyatt. they've been heavily criticized and declined all interview requests from the middle east to the bay area. but that changes tonight. nbc anchor raj has the interview with joel hyatt. >> i don't quite get this. we have the garden. rip that off and put in another
garden. >> reporter: there's a good chance you've never seen or heard of joel hyatt. >> that's a great idea! that's what we ended up doing. >> reporter: until now. the unassuming multimillionaire has pulled off a deal, along with his business partner, former vice president al gore, that has shocked the media world. >> hello there, i have the headlines from al jazeera. >> we studied very hard what al jazeera was doing around the world and made sure we were comfortable with it. al jazeera is carried on the israel's satellite. i think the american public is going to find they will be, as well. >> reporter: gone is san francisco based current tv, a ground-breaking network that never really got off the ground. but hyatt and gore soared, selling current for a reported $500 million to al jazeera english, a tv network that's financed by the oil-rich country of qatar.
hyatt is proud, reflective, and a little agitated. >> what some of the press has been negative, i will say highly hypocritical. it's basically been fox news and "wall street journal," both of which are owned by news corp and news corp second largest owner is the saudi royal family. so this idea that they're criticizing a al gore and i would do nis with arabs is really quite remarkable and they don't even disclose that their company is owned in significant part by arabs. >> but this is just sleazy, al. this is disgraceful. >> is it ironic for you or as some critics say, disengeneral was that your friend and partner al gore would sell to a broadcast company funded basically by oil? >> none at all. look, again, i get the sort of easy shock that you see. >> you see where people are coming from? >> of course. here's what i know. both al and i to a much greater extent al has had extensive
conversations with al jazeera about issue of climate change and we actually believe their going to do a very good job covering this issue that the way the u.s. press does not. >> you've been around the block. you know that the public perception here in the united states of al jazeera is negative. were you prepared for any sort of criticism that you guys are taking? >> i evaluated that very carefully. and at the end of the day, raj, what i believed was, it was clear that those who know are very impressed with al jazeera and with the high quality and professional journalism it does. those who don't know have a biased-based on their lack of knowledge. but think about that. i mean, you know, ignorance breeds biased breeds all kinds of problems in the world. and the whole point of journalism is to provide the information to the people who don't know so that they can become people who do, and al and i i didn't want to base a decision on those who don't know
and the uninformed biases they may have. >> all hands meeting at current with the new jazeera, a few of them. how did that go? transition is always difficult. >> i think it went very well. frankly, i think the new leadership is responsible for that. i gave a talk and turned the floor over. but the fact is the staff was, you know, really eager to hear what the new leadership had to say. and they were very, very good. >> any disappointments at current leaving? >> sure. you always have disappointments. i have disappointments about things we would have libd to achieve but didn't. we were never able to bring the large-scale resources necessary to compete. and this is the real lesson to me. the media industry requires large-scale resources. >> al jazeera be able to make a move forward? >> absolutely. they're going to be able to do the marketing we couldn't afford to do. i think it will make a very big difference. >> so by this spring al jazeera english should be up and running in new york city.
that means the san francisco facility will be shut down. we posted the segment on our website as well, as well as raj's other high profile interviews approximately all you have to do is go to nbcarea.c nbcarea.com/theinterview. people across the bay area are bundled up tonight. temperatures continue to drop. and we are going to check in again with meteorologist rob miata. it's cold out there. >> there's a lot of cold on the map. it's unusual to step outside at 10:00 and scrape the frost off the car. mid 30s and low 30 nasdaq concord. 39 degrees in san jose. a bit warmer, though. napa, fairfield, san francisco and oakland, very interesting tonight. even though the dew point temperatures are indicating the air is colder and dryer than it was last night at the same time. these are the temperatures, upper teens and 20s, if the winds were light and skies were clear, we would see temperature trying to drop as low as those levels.
it's probably not going to be quite that cold because we've got the north winds picking up with high pressure building in from the west that at least in the hilltop tonight will keep it in the 40s. it may not be quite as cold around the north and east bay valleys. wind protected valleys certainly will wake up tomorrow morning seeing 20s and 30s for about 9:00. so we're going to be in this cold pattern through mid morning and will reset everything again tomorrow night on into looks like tuesday morning. more frost. and eventually those temperatures climb up during the day. high pressure starts to build and the numbers climb up. very interesting this morning. we started off in the bay area, 7:00. mid to upper 20s. meantime, starts of alaska, june no and anchorage, this pattern you can see high pressure and warmer air. dropping down into california. that was the story of the weekend. for the workweek ahead we're going see high pressure building back into the west coast which will lead to some warmer days. the morning with that dry air in place likely to stay chill
where. we will go from mornings in the 20s and low 30s by the end of the week, i think we're going to see 30s and 40s. so patchy frost still a possibility as we go through week even as our daytime temperatures start to warm up. here's the future cast. notice we're starting at 8:00. go through the whole day. really can't see any clouds. no fog out there. no high clouds either. we could use some of the fog to act like a blanket overnight. the air is too dry right now to see any clouds. as high pressure builds in, that will also continue to keep the clouds away. wind protected valleys tonight. 20s to 30s out there in the hillville where the winds will keep going overnight. maybe 40s outside for tomorrow morning. 50 in san jose. once again. not much change from today's highs. 40s to 50s along the tri valley and low 50s for the north bay. by the end of the week we will finally see the daytime highs climbing up as we past wednesday. three-day forecast looks dry. seven-day forecast looking dry. into next weekend, if you want to find the nicest outdoor days
of the week, thursday and friday into the bay and coast as winds turn more offshore. numbers in the daytime getting closer to 60. but i still think we're going to see the 30s for the morning through the workweek. >> almost balmy by next weekend. >> sure. 30s and 40s. >> exactly. thanks, rob. still to come, their return to the ice, the san jose sharks are back in action. and fans are very pleased. we talked to one of the team's star players about the lockout and the coming shortened season. and check this out. why hundreds of people riding public transportation turned lots of heads today. also, some more memorable moments from the gloeolden glob >> allow me to say three little words to bradley cooper. where is we he? call me, maybe? ♪

and disable want a solution and fast, especially during the freezing temperatures. nbc bay's has more there. >> diane, it is cold out here, in san jose tonight the temperatures are expected to be in the 20s and 30s. that's a big problem for more than 200 tenants who have been without hot water. some say it's been a nightmare. >> everybody is frustrated. everybody in here is frustrated. >> it's not healthy. i don't like it. you know, it's not a healthy thing to be doing. even washing your dish necessary cold water, you're not getting rid of the bacteria. that's what i'm afraid of. >> reporter: tenants living in this 212-unit apartment building in san jose have had problems getting hot water since december 3rd. >> we're told, catch it when you can. >> reporter: tenants say they've tried to do that, but the water doesn't stay hot long enough for even a quick shower. >> by the time i put on my soap and everything, ice cold. this morning -- it's easy for me
to catch cold that way. >> luke warm. >> yeah. this is not hot at all. get in there when the water is hot, it turns cold, that can be rather shocking for somebody that is like 70 to 80 to 90 years old. >> reporter: we asked to speak to management but instead was issued a statement from a firm which represents the town park towers. the statement says, the problem with the solar heating system was immediately addressed and repaired on december 3rd. but then another problem was discovered. it goes on to say, as of noon today, quote, the replacement boiler system is providing residents with hot water while we make repairs. >> i have ice cold. >> reporter: this evening we went inside two different units and left the tap and shower running. >> yeah. >> reporter: after five minutes, one had warm water -- >> it's warm. i mean, i would take a shower. >> you wouldn't jump in the shower right now? >> if i did, not very long. >> it's almost cold. >> reporter: -- the other was still ice cold. >> it's been said, well, this isn't an emergency because we

same numbers again as we head into tomorrow morning. we had 20 nasdaq campbell. you can see lafayette and pleasanton in the mid 20s this morning. right now we have 30s and 40s outside. coldest spot, concord where the winds are light. very dry air out there helping our temperatures drop off. some spots in the north bay and the east bay hills, if you've got winds going tonight that's a little bit of good news. it will keep the temperatures up in the hills in the 40s. but wind protected valleys, 20s and 30s as you wake up tomorrow morning through 9:00. that's when the freeze warnings will expire. we're going to probably have more tuesday morning than just a slow warm-up as we go through the week. the reason why is this high. all that cold air which has been dipping down into california, more of it is going to move off to the east. warming mainly in the daytime hours. morning temperatures are going to still stay quite cold. 30s and 40s for morning temperatures for the second half of the week. hour by hour tomorrow, mainly clear skies. very cold start. it's going to feel like you're
at southlake tahoe during the afternoon. you think of highs in the 40s and 50s. you think of the sierra. but that's what we'll have again tomorrow. highs may be in the warmest spots. north winds during the afternoon. could get some mid 50s for the day tomorrow. in the knot bay, if you want to see warmer temperatures for the rest of the bay area, you're probably going to have to wait until thursday and friday. second half of the week does look warmer. the mornings, i think, are going to stay cold enough. the air is still quite dry. that patchy frost may stick around and follow us into next weekend. at least the days will be a little more comfortable outside. no more 40s for highs. >> it's been driving me crazy. henry was making fun of me about the basketball highlights he didn't show. i went looking. cal beat pepperdine and the big upset, cal women beat stanford women. huge upset there. sorry for my husband who went to stanford. thank you, rob. it's not unusual for hundreds of people in the bay area to take public
transportation, right, on any given sunday. this sunday hundreds rode public transportation, well, check that out, with no pants. the event, no pants subway ride 2013, elicit reaction from the public, or not so quietly. they're encouraged to walk into stores, bars, bathrooms and malls after their ride and act as if nothing is out of the ordinary while people, of course, look at them curiously. >> we don't break any laws. impromptu. ties in in this here. one guy wore a tie last year, i liked the look. everyone is wearing a tie now. >> full nudity is banned president participants are asked to make sure they have enough money to pay for their b.a.r.t. or muni ride and keep a straight face as best they can. the organizers say the no pants event is now in 15 countries around the world. it was cold to be doing that today. just ahead, she was as familiar as any san francisco institution, right? the bay area mourns one of its
